I am extremely happy to say that I am included in this just released book titled “Contemporary American Printmakers”. It was published by Schiffer Publishing, Ltd, edited by Stephanie Standish and E.

During the Fall 2014 semester, we organized a student print exchange with Kent State University printmakers and KSU Assistant Professor of Art Taryn McMahon. Although I only have a few pictures of the portfolio, everyone really made some fantastic work. All images are 11″x15″. The entire portfolio will go into their printmaking program print archives and a copy will go into the WVU print archives. I have tried to maintain some kind of exchange on a regular basis with other universities. It is such a great opportunity for my students to see the work that is happening at other institutions. Thank you so much to Taryn and her students for participating in this wonderful portfolio with us.

Recent work of mine will be on display in the Beyond Printmaking 4 Juried Exhibition at Landmark Arts, Texas Tech University.

The Juror of this exhibition was Kevin Haas. The show runs from January 17 – February 22, 2015 with a public lecture on Thursday, February 5, 2015 at 6:30 PM in Art B-01 and the reception on Friday, February 6, 2015 from 5:00-7:00 PM.

Below is a new print being shown for the “All’s Fair at the Fair” portfolio at the 2015 SGC International conference.

The portfolio is based on the 1939 New York World’s Fair and is being organized by Guen Montgomery. I chose to concentrate on the bombing that occurred there during the fair.

This weekend I headed up to Pittsburgh to attend the opening reception for the PRINTWORK 2014 juried show at Artists Image Resource. It is a GREAT show, juried by the one and only Bill Fick.

On a personal note, this is the last year I will be organizing the exhibition. I have organized this show since the start in 2012, and have organized all three exhibitions. It has been a lot of work, but a real joy to help create a wonderful opportunity for my fellow printmakers to show their work, and for the people of Pittsburgh to see some wonderful contemporary prints. Thanks to everyone at AIR for even allowing me the chance to do this, and I hope future PRINTWORK exhibitions will grow in stature!

On Monday, I had a great conversation with Pittsburgh artist John Pena. John will be a visiting artist at WVU next year, so it was nice to be able to bounce ideas for his visit. I was also able to snag a few copies of his printed version of Daily Geology. Afterwards, I headed to Artists Image Resource for a board meeting, but I got to see the PRINTWORK 2014 exhibition! It opens this Friday and looks great ! Bill Fick did a fantastic job of curating this exhibition…See you at the reception!
